Yellow Monday: The Landshuter Hochzeit

The town's medieval square with medieval and baroque-style buildings lined on both ends

This Yellow Monday, let us go to Landshut, a town in the State of Bavaria, Germany where we journey back to the Middle Ages to celebrate the lavish wedding parade that took place there hundreds of years ago, in 1475 to be exact. The Landshuter Hochzeit is a festival that happens only every 4th summer, the next one will be in 2013. It was indeed a journey back in time, with people dressed in their best Middle Aged attire to re-enact the wedding feast of Georg, son of Duke Ludwig the Rich and Polish Princess Jadwiga.

The wedding parade. It was colorful and of course, filled with YELLOW!
